Default Prostate issues make restoration useless

I thought it would be of service to all as they reach 40-55 w/prostate issues. Most men (or according to one doctor I know) all men will have an enlarged prostate eventually. Why not include some suggestions and trial and error experiences, so that so many do not waste their money or time on some practices. I have experienced prostate massage, electrical gadgets, microwave surgery, and Laser surgery and learned some really important info from these different efforts. Foreskin restoral is worthless unless the prostate is functioning properly affecting erection dysfunction.

I guess prostate health would be a good topic for our Health Club section. {Thread moved and renamed.}

I don't understand how prostate health or erection issues makes restoration useless. Do you mean that if you can't get erections, why bother restoring the foreskin?

Hi Danmac,

Sorry to hear about your postrate troubles, hope you recover.

I for one would like to hear your points of wisdom on this important subject.

After all it seems we will all suffer to some extent with this as we age.

An enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia - BPH ) is a different issue than erectile dysfunction (ED). Both involve the genitals, but the causes and treatments are different.

The prostate naturally grows and, for many men older than 50, causes urinary problems. The American Urological Association BPH Symptom Index Questionnaire is a good way to assess the extent of prostate problems.

I discovered foreskin restoration when I suffered from acute bacterial BPH. My urethra closed up and I had to wear a Foley catheter for a month until I had my HoLAP surgery. I started manual tugging while I had the Foley catheter.

I also suffered from ED type symptoms. Foreskin restoration has resolved all those issues for me.

Both BPH and ED are conditions that can be treated. The foreskin can be restored and the benefits of restoring can be enjoyed regardless of BPH and ED.

The usefulness of foreskin restoration depends on a man's reasons for doing it. If it's done for appearance or to keep the glans from rubbing against underwear, sexual dysfunction wouldn't matter as much.

As far as I know, erections aren't dependent on the prostate but rather the adjacent nerves leading to the penis. I've met a man who had a radical prostatectomy, but a nerve sparing one that still allows him to get erections. I don't know all that much about this, so anyone here can feel free to explain.

I think it's awesome that the prostate and its problems are being discussed.

Lately in the news, reporters can't seem to stop trying to necromance the myth that circumcision prevents penile, even prostate cancer, even though this has been debunked by none other than the American Cancer Society.

If the following link is correct, one in 6 men will get prostate cancer, which means circumcision isn't helping in the US.

http://www.prostatecancerfoundation....ate_Cancer.htm

This restoration page is becoming more like a 1-stop info resource for men in general, I think that's nice, because then people can come here and get the REAL scoop on things.

Just the other day, I was browsing through youtube, looking for info on the prostate; there is an interesting 3D animation that shows how a prostatectomy is performed, and how drs are leaving the nerves that are supposed to be responsible for sexual response intact. Perhaps in the past they didn't mind these nerves much, and now they do?

This is on the side, and I'll admit that I'm getting into conspiracy theory, sorry for those who get turned off by that... but I was also reading up, also watching on youtube, videos of chemicals being put in our food. In particular, a chemical sold by Monsanto to dairy farms to make cows produce more milk. The chemical was found to cause mastitis in cows, and it got so bad that some cows had to be "culled." A bunch of other countries have conducted their own research and have REFUSED to put this in their cows, but yet, a majority of dairy farmers use it. Could our high prostate cancer rates be due to stuff like this?

We should be discussing the prostate and the effects of restoration on it and vice-versa, I'm sure. It would also be nice if we could talk about PREVENTION as well, as we know circumcision doesn't do that.

GREAT thread goin' on.

Informative for, not only restoring men, but just men in general, as prostate issues affect ALL of us.

Peace.

Unfortunately, doctors are cut happy. We know that about circumcision. It is also true about prostates. A radical prostectomy is often recommended, but not always warranted. Informed consent is key, but, like circumcision, doctors don't always give the full story. Thankfully, the Internet allows us to make our own informed decisions.

For BPH, the gold standard is a TURP, which is very invasive and has a recovery time of up to 6 months. It also has a high risk of retrograde ejaculation (shooting semen into the bladder instead of out). There are less invasive surgical treatments with quicker recovery times that have similar outcomes as TURP. When I discussed surgery with my urologist, he said that I asked questions that none of his other patients asked. I wanted to ensure that I was not a victim again of the doctors' desire to remove as much as possible.

A few years ago, I had a TUNA procedure done...much less drastic than TURP and with a quick recovery time. I had the procedure done on a Friday and had to wear a Foley catheter over the weekend. For the first week or so, my urine flow was slow, but after that, no problems. My semen was pink for a few weeks, but I had no other ill-effects and I haven't had a urinary tract infection since.

LOOSING YOUR MANHOOD THROUGH MULTIPLE ISSUES-PHYSICAL...AFFECTING MENTALLY & PHYSICALLY FOR ERECTION

I my case all of the below factors effected me mentally & erectly, and doc's say that 90% of sex is mental...and I believe them from experience. I had too many issues all together (read below) that really affected me!
I appreciated all your answers, and the gentleman that had the most information about prostate enlargement, vs circumcision, the technical buy was definitely right in by opinion...sorry to mislead many!!!
I believe when we reach that soft erection stage we will try anything...I did! My wife was insistent that her vaginal yeast infections were caused by by intact head...thus eventually I got cut at 50'ish. Helped stopped to much masturbation and not couples sex, which was causing a problem between us, but the cut caused me other issues which you are all aware of. By the way most doctors say it is just the opposite...women most of the time pass it on to men...hum!!!
Then came along PEYRONIES DESIESE, from trying to masturbate out of frustration (little erection) to get to GET RELEASE AND CUM, but with an uncooperative penis. Frustrated & angry I tried too hard and heard the loud crack from my penis and this caused Pyrenees. Pyrenees is not a disease but curvature which can cause small or severe bending of penis, mostly a "U" shaped penis...if extreme bend causes sex to be impossible (PIC"S can be found on net with group stuff like yahoo). Mine was not that bad because caught it early, from information from doctor at circumcision surgery. I took some horse pills the size of a nickel (six at a time twice daily), that the doctor gave me and became almost normal again (slight curve upward and thinks she likes that,...but was a long process and I added vitamin E and rubbed it into penis (wise choice). BY THE WAY HAD ERECTILE ISSUES FOR 10 YEARS 50-60 age. I went from Viagra, to Calais, and the other one and them all or two combination, plus other over the counter stuff for increased erections, drive and semen volume. Viagra about killed me with heart pain) rapid beat).
Lastly my only hope was shots into the penis which on the first one I literally shook, ha. After that realized pain was not bad and the results were fantastic. Started with small c/c amount and increased with doc's input. Now on Tri-Mix...the strongest med. for erectile dysfunction.
My erections now (with shots) are about 2-3 hours long, WOW, and really hard & thick and I believe have caused mental confidence or simply got penne to work better without shots (at times). If erection lasts too long a time, you are on the border of damaging your penis. Anything over 3hours get to the hospital (emergency room)[/color][/b] and insist to get help immediately or permanent damage and tell them will hold them responsible, in Dallas sometimes takes 14 hours in emergency room...Crazy!
Had two seperate prostate surgeries. First one was called "Microwave" (least invasive) and back to work that same day. The second was called "Laser". Two different Doc's. and fist one lied to me not telling that "Microwave" only last about 2 years. The "Lazer" lasts 7 years or longer. My experience with Microwave it lasted me about 3 years. The lazer was more invasive, and not back to work that day and had over the week-end to recover. Blood after lazer and felt my insides were going to fall out for 6 weeks at times...but mildly. I recommend LAZER...why waist your money on MICROWAVE? NOW I CAN PEE LIKE A TEENAGER and SOUNDS LIKE NIAGRA FALLS IN TOILET BOWL!
THERE IS HOPE, DON'T GIVE UP!.
